    Running HandBrake I thought the PC fan was running odd.
    All four cores were running flat out so I checked the CPU temp with SI.
    Average was around 97 Celsius.
    Shut it down in a hurry and sure enough the CPU heat-sink was plugged.
    Cleaned it up, ran Handbrake again and I got rid of 30 C.
    Odd thing is that my better half, where the cats roam free, had a cleaner PC than mine;I semi-routinely clean both at the same time.

    Haha, that's a pretty neat suggestion. Are "proper" filters for vents actually available?

    This has just prompted me to have a look inside my case and it appears I've somewhat neglected cleaning lately, to say the least.

    Edit: ddp beat me to it, was just about to point that out haha ^^

    ShopVac exhaust side with a a high pressure nozzle duct taped to the hose. Every 30 days is the dust bunny removal trick.

    Super Glue and Duct tape holds the world together.
